The purpose of this position statement is to bring attention to inhumane conditions under which Dominicans of Haitian descent have been and are currently living as a result of a state-sponsored campaign of ethnic cleansing from the Dominican Republic.
On September 23, 2013, the Constitutional Tribunal of the Dominican Republic issued a decision that is not appealable. In this decision, the Constitutional Tribunal ruled that Ms. Dequis Pierre, who is a 29 year old registered Dominican citizen from birth, did not in fact meet the criteria for the acquisition of Dominican nationality.” In the same ruling, the Constitutional Tribunal also requested Dominican authorities to identify similar cases of such individuals formally registered as Dominicans as far back as 1929 who would not have qualified as citizens under the 2010 Constitution.
